Tackling malaria hotspots in the Amazon


Last week, the WHO shared in its newsletter the work it does with the UPCH'S Malaria Team, which is led by Dr. Dionicia Gamboa.

The research, supported by TDR, the Special Programme for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases, and in collaboration with Peru’s Ministry of Health, aims to better understand this region’s residual malaria burden and its causes and to develop new approaches that can drive down transmission. It is part of a 13-country project spanning Latin America, South-East Asia, Africa and the Western Pacific region.
